Rogers Power Electronics to Show Data Matrix Code Capabilities at PCIM Europe 2016


Reading time ( words)

Rogers Corporation’s Power Electronics Solutions (PES) group will be explaining and offering examples of its extended capabilities in applying data matrix codes for its various material-based product solutions at the upcoming PCIM Europe 2016 conference and exhibition (http://www.pcim-europe.com). PCIM Europe 2016, one of the top global technical conferences and exhibitions for power electronics technology, is scheduled for May 10-12, 2016 at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre (Nuremberg, Germany).

Representatives from Rogers PES group will be in Hall 9 at Booth 406 to help visitors learn more about its many product solutions for power transfer and thermal management and to explore the benefits of using data matrix codes with many PES metalized substrate materials, including curamik® ceramic substrates, along with power modules, housings, and baseplates. Data matrix codes are essentially two-dimensional matrix codes consisting of black and white square cells arranged in square or rectangular patterns as a unique form of identification.

Identifying Substrates

Rogers can add data matrix codes (DMCs) to a wide range of metalized substrates, including direct-bonded-copper and active-metal-brazed substrates. Codes, which can be text or numeric in form and encoded by code-reading camera systems, are written on metalized surfaces by means of a thin oxide layer formed by an optical laser system; no additional material is required on the substrate. In addition to bare copper surfaces, data matrix codes can be written on nickel (Ni), nickel/gold (Ni/Au), and silver (Ag) plated surfaces.

Standard data matrix code sizes are 2.3 × 2.3 mm and 3.0 × 3.0 mm, with other sizes available upon request. The single dot resolution is 0.164 × 0.164 mm. Positioning tolerance on a copper pad is ±0.3 mm. Using a data matrix code with 14 × 14 dots, for example, provides as many as 16 digits in a numeric code and 10 digits in an alphanumeric code.

Visitors to Rogers PES at PCIM Europe 2016 can learn more about these data matrix code capabilities, including how they can be put to practical use for managing material lots. Data matrix codes can add tracking and security numbers to a master card or every single piece on a master card and can be used to register such details as the lot number or the date of production.

Millennium Circuits on The Move

10/31/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently met with Daniel Thau, CEO of Millennium Circuits Limited, at PCB West. This Pennsylvania-based PCB distributor has been on an expansion path lately, so I asked Daniel to introduce us to MCL and explain where the company is headed. As Daniel says, it’s all about impacting the world in a positive way.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: ‘Tremendous Uncertainty’ in Global PCB Marketplace

10/26/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
For the past two years, EIPC’s Technical Snapshot series has kept us extremely well-informed on developments in printed circuit materials and manufacturing technologies. But what is currently happening in the global PCB market, and how is Europe and the rest of the world affected by the current world situation? The 19th chapter (coincidentally on Oct. 19) in the series gave us a privileged opportunity to find out, as two leading industry analysts presented their observations and opinions in a webinar introduced and moderated by EIPC technical director Tarja Rapala-Virtanen.
